In 2013 The Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in recognition of the distinctive characteristics of the building: the quality of Edmund Gilchrist’s 1929 architectural design, its significance to the community as part of the Rittenhouse Square Historic District, and the early and continuous care given to the character of the building over the years by so many Club members. Tours of the club's interior will be offered before and after the program.

Seating is limited. Tickets = $20 patron, $50 benefactor (name listed in program). Includes lite fare with cash bar. Proceeds benefit the Preservation and Restoration Fund of the Cosmopolitan Club. For tickets, email or call 215-735-1057 x10.
